Ever since the conceptualization of Android Go; a lightweight rendition of the Android operating system for devices with limited processing power and older hardware, we've seen a series of apps tailored to it.

Google's Files Go storage management app is getting updated this week, bringing three new features to all users. Files Go was introduced last December to help Android users who have limited space and memory to free up space and at the same time easily manage the content on their devices.

The exception to the rule, however, is Files Go. As the name implies, this is a section within the Play Store that users can go to check the various subscription services that they might have signed up for.

If you're looking for a new file storage manager to check out on your Android powered BlackBerry, Files Go is certainly one to try. And the app's new SD card storage list and grid views let you apply a filter to see which files are saved to external storage.

India, notably, also surpassed the USA for combined iOS and Android downloads for the first time in Q4. Nearly 3 percent of apps with "Bitcoin exchange" in the title were blacklisted, as well as 2.6 percent using "Bitcoin wallet" and 2.2 percent listed as "cryptocurrency". For example, you can open up that important PDF in your favorite PDF viewer, which apparently wasn't possible before this update. According to today's report from App Annie, Google Play app downloads topped 19 billion in Q4 2017, a new record. Previously available for smartphones only, Google has now opened up Files Go to tablets and added support for SD card clean up as well. This should give you greater flexibility and control when handling all types of files.

Most users turned to third-party solutions, which is one of the reasons why file managers are some of the Play Store's top sellers.
